#Blogmas Day 16: WWW Wednesday – December 16, 2020

Round four of WWW Wednesday and Day 16 of Blogmas! For my last WWW Wednesday post, click here. For more information about Blogmas, you can read my introduction post.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Taking on a World of Words, where you answer the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What have you recently finished?
  • What are you reading next?

If you’re interested in information about the trigger/content warnings, tropes, and representation found in any of the following books, you can search them on BookTriggerWarnings.com

Currently Reading

I’m still reading basically all of the stuff I was reading during the last check in. I did forget to mention last time that I’m also reading The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton.

This is a book club read so we read a certain amount for each week which is why I haven’t finished it yet. I’m having so much trouble keeping up with the names on this book. I keep calling one of the main characters Lisa even though her name is Sara. I have no idea why. It’s pretty good so far so hopefully the second half is just as good!

Here is a recap of all of the books I mentioned last week that I am still reading.

I haven’t made any progress in Catching Fire and The Bride Test but I am reading The Priory of the Orange Tree pretty consistently! I originally was trying to do 50 pages per day but I got too busy and haven’t succeeded in this the past few days.

Recently Finished

Black Witch Magic by Mila Nicks

Purchase on Amazon (affiliate link)

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

I finally succeeded in reading a NetGalley book and then I ended up receiving another one for an upcoming blog tour so my percentage has not really change unfortunately.

This book was pretty good but the weird insta-love between the two main characters was very strange for me. I also wasn’t a fan of the writing-style which seemed more YA than Adult and was repetitive or contradicting at times.

I would say that the best part of this book was the fantasy aspect involving witches and spells, so I wish it would have explored that side of the story a bit more.

The Spark by Jules Wake

Purchase on Amazon (affiliate link)

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This book shocked me with how much it related to my life. It follows a woman and her new boyfriend as they struggle with an ex who refuses to let go. I went through very similar events around two years ago so I related to this book so much that it physically hurt at times to read it, but I just couldn’t stop.

Christmas at the Marshmallow Cafe by CP Ward

Purchase on Amazon (affiliate link)

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

This, like The Spark, was a blog tour read for Rachel’s Random Resources. It’s super Christmassy–if you couldn’t tell from the title–and involves a fifty-two year old woman taking a risk on her dream of running a cafe in an amusement park called Christmas Land (told you it was super Christmassy).

Despite some of the British phrases that often stumped me while I was reading, I really enjoyed this book. Once I finished it, I was desperate to figure out how to make hot chocolate with cocoa beans and marshmallows without gelatin.

Reading Next

Amari and the Night Brothers by B. B. Alston (Tour Date: December 19)

Purchase on Amazon (affiliate link)

Though I want to mostly focus on continuing/finishing the books I’m currently reading, I do have an upcoming blog tour post for Amari and the Night Brothers. I’ve literally only seen 5-star reviews for this, so I’m super excited!

Do you see any books you’ve read or want to read? Stay tuned for next week’s installment for an updating on my December reading!
